[2 Minute Tip] Mini JV Giveaway Event

  • Trevor,

    Sounds like you had a very successful mini giveaway event. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to talk to you more about the details. Traditional giveaways have been a major source of subscribers for me and you really get a chance to find some great potential JV partners from the contributors,

      Hi John,

      I think the event was very successful. I have done many traditional giveaways before but find that the mini giveaways provide better results.
      I have been able to interact with my JV partner a lot closer than when I participated in the larger giveaways.

      • How did you get started with this? Did you work with a particular partner to set it up or get the giveaway software yourself? I’m at the stage too where while I still get subscribes from large events hosting them is where the real subscribers are at. My last event looks like it will bring me close to 1000 subscribers but being a participant isn’t nearly as exciting as it once was. So I’ve been asking lots of questions about mini events. I plan to have close to 3000 subscribers by the first week of October so this looks like a good next step

          I heard about them in a Skype chatroom and then did some learning and investigating them.

          I got in touch with a marketer that had run several of these and had developed a script for hosting them.

          We spoke a lot about them before I hosted my own. I wanted to make sure I was hosting them properly and wanted to be known as hosting good events.

          I am at a point now where I can duplicate the process on demand.

          I recommend hosting these if you can.

  • I too have been a contributor to regular JVGiveaways as a source of leads/subscribers but this sounds very hopeful. I also have many questions of mechanics.

      Hi Ric,

      These are easy to host once you have it setup the first time.
      A lot less “techy” than setting up a larger giveaway event.

      Let me know what you need and I will help any way I can.

      • Hi Trevor

          Hi Shan,
          Hosting these events are a great way to grow your list. As a host you do not need to provide a gift as your are only hosting the event. Your contributors would provide the gifts for the event.

          If you want to host an event you would need an event script to run the event for you. You could get someone to set it up and host if for you (for a fee) if you wanted to get up and running quickly. I can set this up for you if you would like.

          You can find contributors in forums and chat rooms. It becomes easier to find contributors as you grow your network in these places.


  • Just came across your page. Love it! I have hosted several Mini Events and they all have had incredible results. I recommend that people try these out! After hosting 3 events I have added over 600 subscribers! Starting another very soon! Thanks Trevor!

      Hi Matt….Thanks for visiting!
      I am glad you like my blog.
      I agree that these are the best traffic source for list building right now. I have added 400 subscribers in 2 events.

      Let me know how your event goes.
